Not a bad course but the greens have been ruined by disease or bad greenkeeping. The 16th is some hole though!.

we ar a party of 6 people who visit the algarve each year.
here is a selection of our comments
poor teeing areas
lack of sand in bunkers
unable to pre book carts and not enough on the day
no on course catering
no course marshalling _ 6 hours far too long
up and down nature of the course made shouts of four! inevitable and dangerous
distance markers inaccurate
in summary a very poor municipal course - donĀ“t waste your money here.

Played this course for the first in February 2005, was slighly wet due to the winter but never-the-less a fantastic course and more importantly has the longest par 5 in Europe..............I did it in 8 (3 putted) but from a 17 handicap I was over the moon.
Loads of history as the great man "Cotton" designed this.

Played course for the first time on 28/03/06 & thoroughly enjoyed the experience.The fairways were in excellent condition & whilst the greens were on the slow side they were true.

Had a weeks golf with friends in early February 2006. Course getting back to good condition after 2005 drought. Organisation, facilities, staff, clubhouse all superb - highly recommended.
Will be back

This course is nicely laid out with some beautiful views, but there's no real point in playing it at the moment. From tee to green the conditions underfoot are too poor to allow for a proper game. The greens are some of the worst I've ever come across. Swathes of the fairways are completely bare, and there's GUR on nearly every hole. Whilst the green fees have been reduced (E35)it's still not really worth it. Lets hope that things improve dramatically soon. I, for one, wouldn't contemplate going back unless I knew for sure that a great deal of work had been done.

Played Alto in MAr '05 and was very impressed. I was paired up with another couple, but then this is becoming part and parcel of visiting other busier clubs, and was not a big issue.
The course itself was in top condition, much "greener" than other of the more well known (and expensive) Villamoura clubs. A great day and a great course, well recommended for anyone that is in the area

Probably my least favourite of the three courses we played last week. The only course that allowed us to play as a twoball - I'm undecided as to whether this was a good or bad thing, since we were behind a load of fourballs, and progress was painful at times. Condition definitely not so good as Pinta or Palmares, especially the fairways. I struggle to fade the ball, a very useful skill since most of the trouble is on the left, and there are loads of dogleg right holes, so this may colour my judgement. As may the fact that, after playing the first twelve holes really well (and starting back home bogey-par-par, lipping birdie putts on both the par threes) my game completely went to hell. Much easier going than Pinta - for which read less hilly and shorter walks between greens and tees. I'd play again if I were in the area (we stayed in Alvor so it was our closest course) but I doubt I'd drive far to go there.

Great course, pretty tough when the wind blows, but in pretty good condition and good value for money. Friendly welcome at reception.

I have played the Alto Course twice during July 2002. The course is a good test with tight fairways and reasonably fast greens. The condition of the course is good and set to improve further, I understand, as new management are looking to invest funds in the course.
The clubhouse staff are very welcoming and the overall experience was very pleasant. Well worth a visit!
